Award for energy saving miracle Allma CC4

Energy costs are the greatest cost pool in the entire tire cord cabling process. Therefore experts pay more and more attention to this aspect. At this year's Tire Technology Expo, Allma Product Line received the coveted Tire Technology Award for Innovation and Excellence 2011 for its groundbreaking new development of the Allma CC4. The Allma CC4 is a real energy saving miracle and another milestone in the energy efficiency programme e-save of Oerlikon Saurer.

In fact, the Allma CC4 will revolutionise tire cord cabling in many ways. The machine allows for energy savings of up to 50 percent, depending on the yarn count and spindle type. At the same time, the heat load is reduced by up to 50 percent. On the other side quality is significantly increased due to up to 50 percent less yarn breaks and, in addition, the noise level could be considerably reduced.

Allma CC3 is market leader for safety products

Safety is based on quality and therefore every metre produced is continuously monitored by online sensors. Another important feature of the Allma CC3 is its maximum flexibility. In the combi version, the machine is suitable both for two-for-one twisting and cabling. Yarns can be twisted as single yarns as well as balanced and unbalanced 2-ply and 3-ply yarns on the same machine. Quality, economic efficiency and material flexibility are unbeatable features.

The success story is impressive with more than 1400 machines and over 175,000 spindles producing high quality yarns for satisfied customers all over the world.
